Get Some Energy Flowing With Blood Orange

Blood Orange, aka Dev Hynes, is a British singing sensation that you won't want to miss. Hynes has lent his singing, playing and songwriting talents to a large number of successful acts. For the past several years, he's gone out on his own, using just his guitar and his laptop to get electronica fans up out of their seats and moving to the beat of his music.

Schedule

Blood Orange often tours in both the US and the UK. His favorite venues are in London and in California. That way, he can pay homage to being born in Britain, as well as to living in the US. Venues typically hold 100 to 200 enthusiastic fans at a time.

Trivia

Although Dev Hynes has been a proud New York resident since 2007, he actually was born and raised in Britain. He formed his first band there, Test Icicles, which recored only one album, called "For Screening Purposes Only." Hynes then grabbed the attention of Bright Eyes producer Mike Mogis, who used several Bright Eyes members in Hynes' first album.

Hynes is not only an artist in his own right these days, but also a cover artist who has released official bootlegs on Myspace and co-authored music for many well-known musicians. In fact, he co-wrote some songs for Britney Spears, which unfortunately were cut from her 2013 album before production.

Hynes has also produced three books about his life and music, one of which pays homage to his love of superheroes and cult icons. His original stage name, Lightspeed Champion, came from a comic book character he created as a high school student. He also once dressed his entire band as Star Wars characters for a live performance.

Band/Singer

Dev Hynes was no stranger to the music scene before re-inventing himself as Blood Orange. He formerly played with a variety of bands, sometimes calling himself Lightspeed Champion.

Hynes' musical career began in 2007, when he recorded "Galaxy of the Lost" with Mike Mogis as producer and several Omaha musicians, including some Bright Eyes band members. This collaboration also led to his first album, "Falling Off The Lavender Bridge." After that, Hynes wrote music for a variety of his fellow musicians. He also toured extensively with various band members who worked with him on his first album.

Breakthrough

Hynes had several shining moments prior to re-inventing himself as Blood Orange. As Lightspeed Champion, he gained notoriety for appearing with his band on the NME Awards dressed in Star Wars costumes; several offers to play or to write followed this performance. He even was asked to perform on the soundtrack to "Harold and Maude." However, he had to postpone this project because of damage to his throat that required surgery.

Not to be defeated, Hynes took two years to recover, retiring the Lightspeed Champion moniker and remaking himself as Blood Orange. He started by playing occasional shows but he returned to national attention in 2009 when he performed on the final episode of "It's On With Alexa Chung" on MTV. During that performance, he used his strength: dressing in costume while performing. He did the song dressed as a wizard, which caught viewers' attention during the height of Harry Potter mania.

Hit Albums

Dev Hynes has had two hit albums, one as Blood Orange and the other as Lightspeed Champion. Back in 2008, he produced "Falling Off the Lavender Bridge," which he followed up with 2011's "Cupid Deluxe."

Show Experience

Blood Orange shows are usually held in small venues that allow a more intimate connection between performer and audience. Fans are encouraged to sing along with the tracks; Blood Orange himself uses just a guitar, microphone and laptop to create an energetic, exciting experience.
